Pros: - Holes 12-18 involve rock outcrops, making them interesting
- No crowds
- Good signs
- Restroom, parking, playground, trails
Cons: - Tees are in rough condition, dirt/filler only, each seems to have a depression towards the end where people plant their feet
- Many similar holes
- Not a single tree
- Windy/hot
- Buzzing power lines near 3-11
- Hole 10 basket is missing
- Rock really eats up discs (even Champion!)
- Many hole lengths feel inaccurate (especially front 9)
Other Thoughts: The course was actually better than what I expected due to lack of photos - I was thinking grass/dirt, and seeing rock outcrops actually incorporated into the course was cool. That said, landing on the rocks can obviously be dangerous to your discs, as this particular rock type seems to have a taste for plastic, even Champion!

Seeing the outline of the new school consume the best part of this course (rock outcrops) is sad, as I did not care too much for the part that may remain (power line holes) - if this course even survives the construction of the new school.

The wind is a factor here, as this course is wide open. Some bush near 2, 9, 11, otherwise very barren. I particularly enjoyed holes 2, and 12-18.

Some hole distances did not feel accurate at all, seems like there may have been a difference of even 100ft or so - this is, of course, a subjective feel, but this is a first time for me that I felt the distances were not quite right, so I thought I would mention it.

When I played (2 rounds on Sunday morning), there was only 1 other person there playing the course.

Overall, this course is decent, but nothing spectacular. I would say play it to taste the rocks...

Pros: Open shots for good drives.... yep thats it.
Cons: Wind, tons of tall grass to have a disc vanish in. Nothing very techincal about the place, its like a desert wasteland. Tee pads are horrible. Shade? What shade? Not very well maintained.
Other Thoughts: If your in this area, might as well head over to Jellystone.

Pros: This course is easily naviagated. Close to an outlet mall if you come with family that does not enjoy disc golf. Throwing over and around the large rocks was cool.
Cons: Not much variety. The fairway looked like it was mowed, but only about 10ft wide. If you go outside of the fairway in any way, which is very easy to do with the high winds, you will picking stickers out of you shoestrings and socks for 2 days. No shade. Pretty much looks like the desert. The tee pads are pretty rough as well.
Other Thoughts: This course was good to play while the wife and her mom went to the mall nearby. I love playing disc golf, so palying anywhere is never going to be a bad experience. I would prefer to play other nearby courses before coming here due to lack of variety.

Pros: the lay out was easy to understand which is great because i would not want to spend any more time out there than i had to.
Cons: No shade lots of wind, no challenging features tall grass with lots of sticker "socks full" spent a lot of time looking for discs in the roughage. I'd say 15 of the 18 shots felt the same "long and straight into the wind". P.S. try not to twist an ankle on the gravel tee pads.
Other Thoughts: bring lots of water and dont come on a real hot day.

 Another Course In The High Desert Scrub!

Pros: Matney Park starts on one side of the street behind the playground for the first three holes and then continues with the final 15 holes on the other side. The terrain is high desert, scrub with no trees in sight. There is is a very slight bit of elevation. The teepads are gravel and as with the case of gravel tee everywhere, they're uneven and pretty uncomfortable to throw off. The course has a course sign on both sides of the street and simple little tee signs There are Innova baskets and the fairways are mowed about 30 feet wide in places. The holes are pretty straight forward and start to feel fairly similar.
I liked # 18 as the signature hole. With it, the course designers were able to find a cool basket placement in an interesting rock formation 362' from the pad.
The views of the mountains in the distance were pretty.
Cons: With no trees and not much elevation, the designers were severely limited in how creative they could get. Hence, you have a fairly bland course with many hot, dusty holes all feeling remarkably alike.
It's get windy out here on the prairie. It gets lonely out here on the prairie.
I never found the # 10 basket which, I think, should have been up near the street somewhere? Was it there. Probably just me suffering from sunstroke or snakebite or dehydration or something.
Other Thoughts: This is the site of someone's future high school. So I have to assume that these long, dusty mundane disc golf holes which I'm today complaining about will one day in the future site of the principal's office or the girl's fastpitch field or maybe even the biology lab. So I guess, I should be glad that I had the chance to play the course before construction starts and progress rears it's ugly head.

Pros: Not crowded, 18 holes, some interesting scenery
Cons: Uneven dirt tees, very few obstacles or challenge other than distance.
Other Thoughts: Course is not terrible, but in general just pretty bland. I can't see making the trip there unless you want a course all to yourself or it is the closest course to you.

Pros: Good baskets. Wide open for practicing long game. No water to lose the discs in.
Cons: Crappy dirt tee boxes that need to be poured concrete. Not challenging and no technical shots. Prone to lots of wind being high up and exposed.

Pros: Great for a noob if you want to air it out and you are trying to learn how to use your driver. Tee boxes were actually pretty good size and in decent condition. Not crowded on a Sunday at noon. Nice to have a round where nobody is waiting on you. they made good use of the available land and power lines for obstacles. Layout makes sense even to a first timer.
Cons: Could be hell in windy conditions. It's all about the wind here. All of the course is exposed to weather conditions.
Other Thoughts: Bring lots of water on warm days, long pants and sunscreen

Played: 5  Reviewed: 5  Exp: 8.9 Years
Pros: Easy to navigate, some hazards are out there, rocky and weedy terrain. The tee boxes are large and easy to find along with the pins.
Cons: If it is windy do not play this course there are no trees so no shelter, if you have allergys do not play this course it is filled with weeds, possible snakes however none have been spotted yet, if you just want to get out and play it is a good local course but if there are other options take them!

 Ahhhh Wind
